Eureka, or A Town Called Eureka in the UK, is a science-fiction TV series created by Andrew Cosby and Jaime Paglia, that aired on Syfy from July 2006 to July 2012 (5 seasons).
Set in a fictional town in Oregon called Eureka, the show takes place in a high-tech community almost entirely inhabited by brilliant scientists. Most of them work for Global Dynamics, an advanced research facility overseen by the U.S. Department of Defense. Global Dynamics is responsible for the development of all major technological breakthroughs in the last 50 years.
Jack Carter, a man of average intelligence, is a U.S. Marshal who reluctantly ends up as the sheriff of Eureka, a town full of geniuses. Each episode features a mysterious accidental or intentional misuse of technology, which Sheriff Jack Carter solves with the help of the scientists.

One of the good things on Eureka is…Felicia Day ! She plays Dr. Holly Marten in the seasons 4 and 5 (18 episodes). The writers of the show created her character specially for Felicia. And, what a coincidence, Wil Wheaton is on Eureka too. He plays Dr. Isaac Parrish, another researcher at Global Dynamics.
